Simply Ming

Kaffir Lime Crab Mix (#303)

Guest Chef: Susan Feniger & Mary Sue Milliken. If there is one thing that Ming has learned in his years as a chef it's that you just can't go wrong with a crab dish. There is something about the sweet, flaky texture of this seafood that gets people excited. His Kaffir Lime Crab Mix, a blend of crab meat flavored with kaffir lime, shallots, and mustard stands up just as well for a home cook as it does in a restaurant kitchen. This basic mixture can be turned into a variety of dishes from Crab Beggar's Purses with Jicama to Oven-Roasted Crab-Coated Halibut with Cucumber Carpaccio to Veggie Tempura with Crab Dip. Crab meat is the key ingredient behind these recipes, and because a dish is only as good as its ingredients, Ming visits the markets of Hong Kong for a little Crab 101. Taking crab south of the border, guest chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken join Ming in the studio for a Mexican twist on his Kaffir Lime Crab Mix with their Skillet Chilaquiles.
